NEA Jazz Master DeJohnette is among the most influential drummers in history, and GRAMMY-winning saxophonist Lovano is one of the era’s definitive improvisers. Virtuosic bassist, vocalist and Best New Artist GRAMMY winner Spalding remains the brightest star in jazz, and the formidable Argentine pianist Leo Genovese rounds out the band.

NEA Jazz Master Jack DeJohnette is one of the most influential and esteemed drummers in jazz history, as well as a brilliant pianist and composer. In addition to his seminal work with Miles Davis, Charles Lloyd and his own Special Edition, DeJohnette has been one third of piano luminary Keith Jarrett’s sublime trio for the last three decades. With two-dozen albums for Blue Note, Grammy Award-winning saxophonist Joe Lovano, a former member of the SFJAZZ Collective, is one of the era’s definitive improvisers and bandleaders. His newest ensemble, Us Five, includes Esperanza Spalding and won Lovano a triple crown in DownBeat’s 2010 Critics Poll for Jazz Artist of the Year, Tenor Saxophonist and Jazz Group. Esperanza Spalding, a virtuosic bassist and luminous vocalist, was already the brightest young star in jazz before her unprecedented 2011 Best New Artist Grammy Award. She has become an international phenomenon, and her 2012 release, Radio Music Society, debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard album charts. The formidable Argentinean pianist Leo Genovese, a longtime Spalding collaborator, rounds out the band.

These stars played like gifted unknowns with nothing to lose in a set that eschewed standards in favour of some dazzling collective improv.
